I. Activity background
Before the Lunar New Year 2020, China reported a sudden outbreak of Corona-virus related pneumonia, which affected the celebration of the Chinese lunar calendar New Year 2020. The virus spread vigorously around China and has ever since affected the entire globe. During the outbreak, students from JUFE joined in the fight against the corona-virus, showing their support and hoping that victory over the epidemic will soon be realized. 因此，海外教育学院现以“你我同心抗疫情，齐心协力共战“疫”为主题组织征文大赛，希望全体留学生积极响应“停课不停学”的号召，和老师们一起为实现自己的求学梦而努力。开展此次活动也意在和大家共同记录下，江西财经大学全体留学生与学校一起守望相助、同舟共济，众志成城战疫情的真实故事和切身感受。
At this juncture, the school intends to narrate and showcase real stories of how the international students of Jiangxi University of Finance and Economics have helped each other together, and how the university and school have helped the students as well as your true story and personal experience during the fight against of the epidemic. We hope that students will continue responding positively towards the call of online learning and work jointly with teachers to realize their goals and dreams.
